Hooks

Anyone use hooks from Wholesale Fly Co.? Prices are very good, but don't know about the quality of the hooks.

Thanks, guys. Going to barbless hooks, and those are a very good price. Tired of mashing barbs. :lol:

Yep, overall I like them. Some of the dry fly hooks at larger sizes seem a little thin to me but that does not stop me from buying them.

The list of hooks offered always seems to expand.

I would have guessed Dai-Riki. His hooks, to me look just like them. After Dai_Riki had stopped being distributed , I assumed Wholesale Hooks had picked up the account.

Thank you for the info.

They all look very very close now.
FWIW, I heard a rumor that one machine was making multiple brands of the same run.
